Library Tours & School Visits

Classes from local schools and other youth organizations are welcome to visit the Library for an orientation and tour.  Library staff are also available to visit your school for special events.  Both of these services are a great chance to interact with Library staff and learn about what the Library can offer to students, parents, and teachers.  To arrange a tour and/or school visit, please contact Youth Services at least two weeks ahead of time.  You can also submit your information and a staff member will be in touch.  Library Tour & School Visit Request Form
